About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Par 70
Length 5698 yards
Slope 111
Rating 65.9

Lake Arbor Golf Course is a scenic 18-hole course that is open to the public. The course is 5,865 yards at its longest tees. The course features lush, medium-sized greens and narrow fairways. Pretty creeks and ponds create water hazards that come into play on some holes. The classic layout is easily walked and provides picturesque views at the same time. Experienced and beginning golfers alike get enjoyment from Lake Arbor Golf Course. The most difficult hole is the par-5 10th hole that covers 483 yards. Its difficulty stems from the fact that it requires an approach shot past a water hazard.

Good in-town corse

I prefer par 4-5 heavy courses so this one already makes the list. Straight without a lot of obstacles so it's not as intriguing as I'd like but overall, for the price with cart, pace was good and the day was great!

Lake Arbor

Typical old school course. Blue tees are not much farther than white. Play it if the price is right.

Slow day.

There seemed to be too many people out playing. They ran out of carts so we had to wait until our exact tee time to get to the tee box and get our carts.

Great Par 70 Golf Course

Our foursome consisted of two guys who had experience playing Lake Arbor and the two of us rookies.

Some very challenging holes and some easier ones with birdie potential.

The greens and most of the course was in great shape.

We will play again at least once more this summer.

LayOut tight

There were several holes that we're back to back were you had to be watchful of flying balls. Did not like the layout and nothing special about the holes. A place to play if you just want to practice your game.

Perfect

I found the perfect tee time for an amazing price and even though I made a mistake and booked my time for two days later, the gentleman at the front desk made my day and set me up anyway!!!

Long But Friendly

Some of the holes play long, but what you see is what you get. Fairways are largely flat and wide. Holes are close enough to each other for walking. Nine hole rate is fair, not 80% of 18, as some courses do.

GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

FUN-FAIR COURSE, BUT THE PRICE AND TEE-TIME BRINGS OUT BEGINNER GOLFERS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW PROPER GOLF ETIQUETTE... SLOW PLAY, DRIVING CARTS ON TO TEE BOXES, AROUND GREENS, AND DOWN PAR-3 FAIRWAYS THAT ARE CLEARLY MARKED "CART PATH ONLY."

Lake Arbor

Course layout needs to be a little better and the directions on which way you go. But overall course and conditions were great and the staff was friendly and helpful and everything .

Fun little course

Lake arbor is a fun, short course with narrow fairways and small greens. Don't worry if you don't hit many greens in regulation, you can still score well! Most of the greens are elevated which adds about 1/2 club more than you think. Not many risk vs reward holes...the golf course is pretty straight forward and you will get to use every club in your bag. Really enjoyed paying here and we will be back again later this year!

Renovations hurt my experience

Overall a decent course. They were doing renovations so a lot of tee boxes were moved up (I shot 3 under when I normally shoot 5 or 6 over). It was hard for me to get a feel for the layout due to to this but I still think it wasn't very challenging. Many putts were dead straight, but they were in good shape and rolled "true". All in all, if you can get on for less than $30 it would be worth it, but for the advanced golfer I would not recommend.

This course was in good condition for that time of year

The course has a promotional feature, but if you book through Golfnow you are not eligible to participate. It's a free round of golf after so many times.

Nice course

This course was in excellent condition! The greens were smooth and fast. I was surprised how quickly we went around considering the course was full and it was a sunday. It took right at 4 hours. will definitely play here again!
